In the 80,000 km I had my V-Strom, I think I replaced the air filter once.
So about 25K "mi." between. When living in Western Washington(Wetside) that was no problem for me. Now in Spokane and its much dustier-buggier, so 15K is about it. The snorkel screen went on at 5K? and helped a lot.

I could be wrong, I might have changed it twice. I'm pretty sure I did change it before the (somewhat delayed) valve clearance check around 50k. And probably changed it then, too. So maybe only 20k miles between changes. And I do remember it having a good collection of bugs and sand.

I finally got around to taking the fuel tank off my Wee for the first time today to replace the OEM air filter with a K&N. My DL650A was manufactured in January of 2011 and has 10,800 miles on it, better late than never I guess. The only other routine maintenance item that I'm behind on (according to the owner's manual) is a spark plug change, so I'm going to knock that out (along with a routine brake fluid and coolant change) while everything is taken apart. Enjoy the graphic photo, LoL.

Are you sure about spark plugs change?
